Number 2: Although most of the details were finalised a while ago, I haven't blogged about this yet. I've been working at Amino for over four years, developing software for a range of Linux-based set-top boxes. It's been a good place to work for most of that time, but recently I've decided that it's time to find new employment.
At the end of March, I'll be joining ARM as a Staff Software Engineer, working on Linux and other Open Source / Free Software with them. The job looks awesome, just about exactly what I've been looking for. And I'll be joining two more Debian folk who are working there already. Woo! :-)
Apologies for not posting in a while. I've been a little busy of late, but I promise to fill in some of the details in the next few days.
Number 1: Jo and I are engaged. We went to a nice restaurant on Saturday for her birthday. I totally surprised her by asking the question in her birthday card: "P.S. Will you marry me" at the bottom. The look on her face as she said "yes" was awesome. *grin*
I had already surprised her a couple of weekends back by taking her to Paris for Valentine's weekend. She didn't know we were going until we got to the checkin desk for the Eurotunnel.
Now I've got a problem, though: what do I do for a surprise two weekends from now? :-)
